Default Zalman Reserator 3

Zalman Launches Reserator 3 Max CPU Cooler Using Nano-Fluids | PC Perspective

::: Zalman, leading the world of Quiet Computing Solutions :::

Interesting new cooler from Zalman. It seems to break the traditional AIO cooler design that has been with us for the last couple of years. I wonder if the all copper rads will make a difference to temperature transfer. Not sure whether 'nanofluids' will actually do anything, or if they are just a gimmick. The block looks like a nice piece of industrial design, especially if the casing is made from metal, and not plastic.

All the same, I hope it comes to our shores, and if it does, I really want to see a benchmark.

I actually really think that's a Brilliant design.

I would rather believe and find god doesn't exist than to not believe and find that he does.

Even if it perform "ok", if it's as good as the other offerings out there, at least this one looks awesome. Love it.
Is smoke supposed to come out of there?
